This is a great cart, especially for the price it is offered for on Overstock. I saw it on other sites for quite a bit more. It's sturdy overall, the black finish was done perfect and the stainless steel top is substantial and did not have any scratches. This is the second piece of furniture I've bought from the Home Styles brand and I'm very happy with quality of both. Both items were packaged very well, which makes all the difference as to whether or not the item comes damaged from the shipping process (which has been issue with other furniture I've bought from other brands). I am not terribly handy, but I did not have a hard time putting together the cart other than for one of the drawers. The first drawer went together perfectly, but on the second one, the four sides did not line up properly with the bottom, and the particle board partially disintegrated from the screws. As a result, that drawer is especially weak and I only use it for holding kitchen towels. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the drawer bottoms are rather flimsy. I would not keep silverware or anything heavy in them - even the one that went together fine. I also was not a fan of the handle hardware, so I just bought different hardware that matches the handles on my kitchen cabinet drawers and it looks great. The description of the product is inaccurate where it states that the center shelf is adjustable. Neither of the shelves are adjustable, they must be fixed in one position where notches have been cut out in the legs in the cart to fit the shelves. I was disappointed that the shelf was not adjustable since I was hoping to store a few taller items on the shelf which do not fit. The height between the shelves is only about 9 inches. Overall this is an attractive and well-made cart.

Highly recommend- for the price point the quality of the cart and the stainless steel top surpasses the great deal. Easy to assemble. Love it!!

Except for the price, this cart is awesome. Roomy enough for all the stuff. The stainless steel top seems a little delicate but if you're careful it should be ok.

I had been shopping around for several weeks for a kitchen cart. I found this one and waited for a coupon to purchase it. Well, it arrived damaged but O quickly resolved that problem and sent another. It took me about 2 hours to assemble it and I did it alone. The end result is a very handsome and sturdy piece of kitchen furniture. My only complaint would be is that the stainless steel top scratches fairly easily so you must be careful about what you lay onto it and NEVER consider using it as a cutting surface.

I ordered this cart for a small office kitchen. We had very little counter space and the little bit we had was being taken up by a microwave oven. I brought this piece in to use as a microwave stand and it is plenty big enough for the microwave/convection oven as well as some prep space. It was easy to put together and is super sturdy. The stainless steel top seems to be holding up well, no scratches yet!! And it really just looks nice.

I'll begin with this: on the whole, I'm actually quite satisfied with this kitchen cart. The color and style are quite accurately represented. The included hardware is also fairly nice and I think that many people would be satisfied with this product "as is." My husband and I, however, decided to swap out the included drawer handles for some vintage brass cup pulls and that has really upgraded the look and feel of this piece. That being said, if I had to purchase a kitchen island / cart again, I probably would not choose one with a metal food prep surface. We chose this one because my husband really wanted something that would allow for quick and easy food prep, but I've been a bit disappointed with (1) how easily the surface scratches, despite the fact that we don't cut directly on it; and (2) how plainly it shows every single fingerprint or mark. As a word of advice to potential future purchasers: invest in some Barkeeper's Friend or some stainless steel cleaner -- you'll use it frequently if you care about keeping the surface looking nice.

SORRY FOR THE LENGTHY REVIEW BUT IF YOU'RE SPENDING THIS MUCH MONEY ON THIS PIECE I WANTED TO PROVIDE A THOROUGH DETAILED REVIEW FOR YOU GUYS. HOPE IT HELPS. Ok let me tell you first off this is a beautiful island & gets A lot of use from rolling dough on the granite to cutting veggies on the butcher block which easily pulls out so you can carry it over to your stove, a convenient trash bin directly under the butcher cutting board, locking wheels, easy rolling wherever you want to take it to make your workstation, lots of storage in the large pullout, shelving on the bottom, storage basket on side of cart, rings to hang laddle/rolling pin/measuring cups. I LOVE this cart not only for it's beauty but how functional it is. I am surprised how much use we get out of it, not to mention our newly remodeled kitchen stays super clean because all mess is made on this cart instead of all over the counters in the entire kitchen so clean up is super easy. Now for the bad....the handle that comes with this cart is super light & cheapy. To cheap for a cart of this caliber in terms of expense & beauty so we put a solid stainless steel longer handle pull. The other thing is it was a FIASCO to try & put this cart together !!!! OMG the directions were not the easiest to follow & there were SO MANY parts & pieces. It came completely dismantled in shipping :(( So be prepared for some time & patience. But once done it's just beautiful. One big thing that we were very frustrated with was that we had to wait what seemed like forever to receive it & once we did I didn't waste anytime to get my husband to put it together to start using it quickly but after opening it it was severely damaged. The side wood panels were cracked & the granite piece was broken into two pieces. We called O & they set up for parts delivery. We waited and waited & waited !!! Got no parts so we called & they said there was a problem with the warehouse that sends the parts so they sent a whole new piece to us. I was ready to give up but glad I didn't because it is a GREAT workstation & gets used at least 2-3x day!!!!!

This island is such a gem. After looking for months for a functional but classy butcher block island in my price range (>$300)...i decided to go with the stainless steel top instead of cheap look-alike butcher tops. I am so pleased, it ties in so well with other stainless products in my kitchen and works well with the wainscoating I have. the top will be a breeze to clean (as opposed to wood tops). As for assembly, it was a moderate challenge for 1 person (who had a 1 year old following my every move). Was able to finish in about 2 hours...but all pieces were in good shape and the directions were more than clear. I give this island an A!

First of all, I took a risk on this cart, ordering it sight unseen, because it was WORLDS more attractive than other carts in its price point (and beyond). Most of them are just downright fugly! And I was incredibly pleased by the quality of the build. The finish isn't cheap. The "carving" in the wood is nice and crisp. It feels quite solid. It's clearly not high end custom wood furniture but it's still SUPER nice, especially for the price. (Example: the shelves LOOK like separate planks, but they are not; it's an illusion. But it's a nicely done illusion.) It was even packaged well and everything arrived undamaged. I could have paid much more and still been very happy with the quality. It looks very nice, holds its own very well, even next to my late-1800s heartpine china cabinet and with my modern Eames Compact Sofa in the same room. That's what really impresses me: in a room full of much more expensive furniture, it still looks great. It took some work to put together, but the instructions were actually very good, and it was less work than it could have been. My husband and I did it together and never had any of those perverse "They did WHAT??" moments. (I do recommend 2 people to put it together though. You need the leverage. And it's heavy.) They very thoughtfully labeled all the individual parts with letters and numbers so you didn't have to guess what was what. The screws and such were in separate bags, labeled by size/type. Really nice. The only thing that I would change is the stainless steel top. I don't really care for stainless to start with, and alas this is the cheaper kind of stainless that gets fingerprints when you so much as LOOK at it. But, this is a minor quibble. If we keep it after our kitchen remodel, we will get a wood top made for itů or maybe get one of those butcher block cutting boards that has a lip to cover a counter. A minor quibble. In short: Yay! The last piece of furniture I ordered from Overstock was a disaster, but this one has renewed my faith. Love it.

I really like the cart. Not hard to assemble- did it myself. Very strudy, nice stainless steel top and I like the detail on the legs. Read some of the other comments about the drawer bottoms being flimsy, they seemed ok to me. I use them to store dish towels & napkins- so maybe that's why. Also, the hardware was said to be cheap looking. It's not terrible and doesn't stand out either way. No complaints here, glad I bought it !!!

The cart itself is great and the stainless steel top seems to be high quality. The towel bars are very nice also. My only issue is with the drawers, which are a little flimsy and one of which doesn't glide smoothly. Also, the drawer pulls are cheap quality and quite frankly, ugly. I bought new pulls locally and am much happier with the look now. Overall, I recommend this cart for the price and with a little extra effort you can replace the cheap pulls.

Please note that the shelves are NOT adjustable as in the description. Still a fabulous piece of solid good looking furniture. The.Instructions and packaging top notch. Very easy to follow instructions and well marked parts and bags of hardware. they even give you one extra of everything. I put this together myself in about 2 hrs.This is just the right size for our kitchen, not too big or too small. So versatile,with two towel bars, two drawers, and we can store wine and pots and bowls. The stainless steel top is so cool looking. My husband came home and just loved it so much he took me out to dinner!

Solid hardwood top is nice. Hardwood frame was warped. Hardwood doors are nice but had to trim both doors to fit. Shelf is MDF and had to make better supports all around and made a center support so it will not sag eventually. Sides are a very thin MDF and were all warped but I glued them into the slots in the frame. I replaced the wooden drawer and door pulls with stainless steel pulls and it makes a huge difference in appearance Also I did not like the cheap plastic casters and also replaced them with solid hardwood feet (will be stationary) . After all the modifications I made this cart it is very solid (gluing the sides make a huge difference) and looks like it should cost hundreds more(the new pulls make a HUGE difference!!!!). I was very suprised to see how nice this cart was for such a great price.......
